don't believe that it's ever been a belief in religion. this is what i'm going to say that the christian part of barack obama's history made him did not have. another save you some of them. i believe he's christian. i have been to his church and i believe that is what he believes in. as christian and i converted to islam because i felt for women it is more protected because of their traditional role of father and mother in the home with her mother was allowed to be at home and have children with protection of the father. i thought i was a positive situation for me. it takes women off welfare and we don't have that game situation in prison situation that we would have here. but israel, i don't think we should follow their lead because i think the world looks at how americans get along with each other, not how israel gets along with america. israel's approach and the religion is an eye for an eye. they do not follow the christian approach. so when things happen to them in the international war, i feel that followed i for an eye and american doesn't follow that actually t

by a u.s. drone strikes. not ideology or religion. it is driven by desperation. yemen's live in $60 economies. in a region that is cut off from the rest of the world, where people are living on less than 800 calories a day, that makes a difference. it is a real concern about government corruption that is pulling people into the insurgency in yemen. not drone strikes, not jihad, not ideology. all of those things are used. the second thing i found in yemen, they resent the drone strikes. they have the image of the drones and the u.s. government is standing up a government that is not accountable to them. we hear this over and over. in the south and in the north. this notion that the u.s. is propping up a government that is not responsive to the population. it is fundamentally undermining our political objectives, even while securing our security objectives. neither one of them bears any resemblance to the facts on the ground. they are distorting our ability to understand the relationship between the instruments of policy and the actual substance of our objectives. our security terms a

[ laughter ] >> bill: there is still an amazing amount of spillover from last week's presidenti
when martha raddatz asked them how their religion affects their policies particularly on the issue of abortion. >> uh-huh. >> bill: the vice president said i'm a catholic but i'm not going to impose that on everybody else. >> that was a very very smart answer. >> bill: he said, but it is not my role unlike other people it's not my role to try toe force my religious viewpoint on all americans. here is the vice president on that. >> i -- i do not believe that -- that we have a right to tell other people that -- women they can't control their body. it's a decision between them and their doctor. >> bill: that issue and also when he talked about the catholic church on the issue of contraception. i thought the vice president spoke strongly on the issues of women's health again, which president obama did not razor talk about the administrations record. >> yeah i thought it was a really important point. the economy matters, obviously, but what the republicans and this right-wing faction that has taken over their party is frightening. and you had paul ryan basically
, what i did find is that the recruiting is not driven by the u.s. truck strike, ideology or religion, that even a driven by a notion of clothes and hot. in a region that is cut off from the west of the world were people living on less than 800 calories a day that makes a real difference. economic deprivation and a real concern about government corruption is pulling people into the insurgency, not u.s. throws strikes or global ideology. all of those things are subsequently used as the indoctrination process. subsequently used to legitimize and mobilize and prepare their message to the broader world. that's not what is actually bringing 18, 19, 200 kids. the second thing is overwhelmingly they resent the does tracks. they resent the draws tracks of the national sovereignty grounds to national pride grounds, but they also resent them because they have the image that the drones and that the u.s. government is standing up a government that is not accountable to them. we hear this over and over. it did not matter what i was talking to. this notion that the u.s. is propping up a government
in art, it is more personal, mo prayer than in the politics, religion, preference. it is just something that goes to the very soul when you say, you bought that? >> this is the first parish church in new brunswick, maine. it is significant to the story of "uncle tom's cabin" that in many ways the story began here. it is here in this pew, pew number 23. teachers do, by her account, sought a vision of uncle tom being with to death. now, uncle tom is you probably know, is the title charactercome to hear of her 1852 novel, "uncle tom's cabin." "uncle tom's cabin" was written very much as a protest novel to the slave block of which mandated in 1850 that anyone in the north, where of the abolitionists live, if anyone in the northwest to aid or abet a fugitive slave, they themselves would be imprisoned or fined for breaking the law. and this was the bill that was seen as kind of a compromise between the north and south to avoid war. it said that was part of what the novel was trying to do, to say the same, i am a person can hear you beecher stowe, name against slavery as a much of new england.
that republicans attack women is so offensive to me and the way they talk about religion is offensive as well. some people don't like to hear celebrities talk about politics. i don't think i'm a celebrity, i'm a working actress. >> oh god. spare me that line. >> and it's looking more and more likely that the smaller cheaper ipad is coming this fall. apple has placed an initial order of 10 million tablets being dubbed as the ipad mini. the current ipad has a 9 inch screen, while the competing kindle and nook have 7-inch screens. >> the phones are getting bigger, and the ipads are getting bigger. >> i wouldn't want a smaller screen. >> the only benefit would be cost. because presumably you could buy one for cheaper. >> bill: no. >> i'm with you. >> bill: steve jobs would not like it either. >> i think you might be right. >> bill: all right. yes, indeed look the news of the day we have already had calls and emails about it. obama supporters are panic over the latest pew poll. the poll this morning shows that among likely voters since last week's debate mitt romney has soared
, the issue of the role of religion and secular and so on is still there in algeria. and there is a statement which is presently, to me, when he says, he talks about the pgd, and he talks about the regime. it's like the pgd is something, and the regime is something else. it's like pgd is the government, and the government is part of the regime in my sense. so what is the story? it's like the pgd is something outside of the regime, and then the monarchy is something else. but what i see is really the secularists and t non non seq. lahrists. it's like the pgd is the -- [inaudible] of the islamists, few yo like. >> okay. thank you very much. why don't we start with anwr, and then we'll have a few more minutes just to wrap up. >> sure. because the new constitution, as i said, it's still ambiguous. so the prime or the head of government still, you know, he has some powers, but there's still interpretation of what that power means. so in that there are differences between the pgd, pgd is true it's a party in power. it does not control, obviously, the government. it's only one among many. so it does
